We loved staying at Young Monk sooo much we even extended our stay. Although the room feels somewhat overpriced for quite a standard room, the location is stunning, the view from the balcony is gorgeous, the hospitality and warmth from DJ and all the other staff was immense, all of which more than make up for the price. The food was delicious in the cafe and we just felt so relaxed staying here. Highly recommend !!

Best hostel I stayed in during my time in India… I can’t wait to to back! Young Monk had a real special energy about it and that’s definitely down to Roma & DJ, amazing couple and hosts … I stayed longer because I really didn't want to leave. Shivam & other volunteers were also really friendly & helpful! The food was delicious, I normally like trying different places.. But nowhere could compare. There was always something good going on, like music jams, ah I miss it! Peace & love :)

I planned on staying for 3 nights and ended up staying 2 weeks. I loved the vibes at this hostel and a big part of it was because the staff made me feel so at home. I also found the food to be really amazing and the beds to be really comfortable. Location is great too since it’s a bit tucked away from the busyness but still nearby. Can 100% recommend!
